We stayed in the Poly Plaza during a trip to Beijing. I would consider this to be a Hyatt or Wyndham class hotel for a fraction of the price. We did not choose this hotel, it was selected by a group. The room was spacious and clean. I was amazed to find a computer provided in the room, no hourly charge, with free high speed Internet. That made working or keeping in touch very easy. It appears to be a very new building. There is a metro station just across the parking lot. You don't even have to cross a street (very dangerous in China). The metro will take you to Tienanmen Square, the Silk Market, or just about anywhere for about 30 cents per ride. The only downside is there isn't too much of interest in the immediate area of the hotel. We found a decent Thai restaurant a block away, but that's the only interesting thing we found outside the property. There is a theater in the hotel and it would have been interesting to see a show there. There is an ATM that will accept U.S. ATM cards and dispense Yuan. The breakfasts each day were fabulous with plenty of western and Chinese items including several meat items. There was also a high end Chinese restaurant on site (they didn't speak much English in there but had picture menus), and also a western restaurant that we didn't try. There is also a bar on the main level, a store, and a travel agency. The hotel staff was always friendly, helpful, and courteous and quite a few of them could speak English. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. There is a high end coffee area on the ground level that appeared to be very expensive that one reviewer is apparently referring to, we skipped that. No other spot in the lobby to sit could be a downside to some, I guess, though it didn't bother us. Very nice, clean, modern hotel.
